Popcorn Shrimp

I love popcorn shrimp. It's such a simple recipe that's full of flavor. It's one of my go-to recipes when I'm hosting friends and family- it's a great appetizer or snack.



Savorers......I have another kitchen gadget! Don't judge- this will probably be the last one for a while. I bought a Cosori air fryer!!! And it's amazing. It's a touch screen appliance that's easy to use (considering I didn't really read the manual). I bought the 3.7 qt, which is a good size to store on the counter. I was a bit skeptical about using the presetting, but I did and the shrimp came out golden and crispy and cut more cooking time in half. The air fryer comes in two sizes- 3.7 qt and 5.8 qt . Corsori offers 3 colors- black, red, and white. I can't wait to try more recipes with this gadget.


Note: If you don't have an air fryer, there are directions below to oven bake the shrimp.
